Seabiscuit is located in what many people refer to as the most extraordinary neighborhood in Kennebunkport. One block off of Ocean Avenue, 2-3 blocks to Walker's Point, President & Mrs. Bush's home , and is surrounded by multimillion dollar homes. There are ocean views from the large, sunny deck and you are able to listen to the ocean crashing on the rocky Maine shore at night, Seabiscuit is fully winterized and because it is south facing, it is drenched in year round sunlight.
The heart of this wonderful home, the Great Room, has high, beamed ceilings, a super stone fireplace, large flat screen TV, large sectional sofa and Ralph Lauren easy chairs for real relaxation time. Beautifully furnished indoors and out, with superb outdoor deck furniture, the environment is pet and family friendly and has a terrific back yard for play.
The first floor also features a gorgeous teak dining table with upholstered antique chairs, fully outfitted kitchen, spectacular living room with Ralph Lauren sofa (perfect for chatting and reading), a big playroom for the kids and a beautiful powder room with exquisite marble.
The second floor has a super, large master bedroom with four poster bed and bath with shower, along with two other family bedrooms and bath with tub & shower. The master bedroom is spacious enough to easily accommodate a portable crib if necessary.
The amazing part of this classic colonial is that it has a full third floor with two large bedrooms and bath. Kids love to hang out here!
Quite simply, the neighborhood is fantastic! Made for running & walking on Ocean Avenue and biking, the Colony Hotel and Beach is just two blocks away, as well as the Breakwater Inn & Spa, The Nonantum,
Inn & Restaurant, Edge water Inn, Mabel's Restaurant, St. Ann's Church and the newly refurbished Cape Arundel Inn & Restaurant There are so many restaurants within walking distance that you just may not cook your entire stay. We always walk to the art and crafts fairs at the River Club and the Silas Perkins Park every summer. Dock Square is also within walking distance, approximately 1 1/2 miles.
Our home isn't a 'stripped down' rental; it is our beloved 'Seabiscuit' and it is charming! We are children and dog lovers and welcome them.
My husband's family has been coming to Kennebunkport for over 40 years. There is something about this area that does get into your soul! We wanted a home between The Colony Hotel and Walker's Point, President & Mrs. Bush's home, because this neighborhood is the best of everything-fabulous homes, not too busy, great for relaxing and star gazing and ocean views!
The Great Room in Seabiscuit and the outdoor deck are absolutely amazing and we are crazy about this house in this neighborhood.
My Husband and I recently spent a long weekend at Seabiscuit. We are so thrilled to write this review because it is just the best place on earth to get away to. Large beautifully decorated rooms with high ceilings and views from every window. Just a short walk to Ocean Avenue, St Ann's Church(this weekend we were at the service with the Bush Family) The Colony where you can have cocktails and dinner and of course town is also within walking distance. No need to drive much from Seabiscuit's location.
The home has everything you need. The sense of serenity in each room as the décor is the most beautiful we have ever been in. Sitting out on the deck with views of the ocean is a place you won't want to leave. Magnificent is the word we believe describes the patio with large comfortable furniture.
We are planning on bringing our family in the fall for a birthday celebration. We can all stay together here and the beds and linens are luxurious as it is immaculate.
We love Seabiscut and the owners are so very accommodating.

A group of 12 girls all gathered for a reunion - we were blown away when we walked in - the house looks exactly like the pictures, and Mary Ann was incredibly easy to work with! The house is just about a mile outside the main town and a short drive to the public beach. I highly recommend this home to anyone looking to come to the Kennebunkport area. We were more than comfortable with such a large group and having the large deck was wonderful. Hoping to return in the future!
Excellent is the right word of description: My wife and I have rented in this wonderful neighborhood for the last 6 years.This house is immaculate in its cleanness, great in its location and owned by a family that love it and appreciate its comfort and beauty. It does have good ocean views and is only a short walk to the ocean, and the most outstanding walk along the ocean in the USA. From St.Ann,s Church,to Walker Point (the home of President Bush). Good owners and a good house. You will like it!
House was perfect for 5 couples. Plenty of room, comfortable seating in family room and on deck. Nice view of ocean from deck and can hear waves crashing on rocks. Walk one block and find yourself strolling along oceanfront. Beds very comfortable and nice new gas grill on deck. Fireplace was awesome. Would definitely stay again.
This bright and lovely home is a fantastic place to spend a week of relaxation at the beach with family. Our group of 10 (2 families) was very comfortable and had plenty of space for both gathering together and for privacy. All of the bedrooms are spacious, clean and beautifully decorated, and the children enjoyed sleeping on the 3rd floor with their own bathroom. There is a nice view of the ocean, a small beach just down the street (walking distance), and the neighborhood is gorgeous. The owner was very accommodating and wonderful to deal with. Kennebunkport is a fabulous town. We hope to return next summer!
Seabiscuit is located just two blocks from The Colony Hotel & Beach, The Breakwater Inn & Spa, The Nonantum, Cape Arundel Inn & Restaurant, Edgewater Inn & Restaurant, Mabel's Restaurant , St. Ann's Church and famous Walker's Point.
